Brown Released...

[Associated Press Report]

Brown released for Va. court appearance

ATLANTA (AP) Bobby Brown was released from jail Monday because he must appear in a Virginia court.

DeKalb County Sheriff Thomas Brown said he was presented with an order requiring the R&B singer to appear in family court in an emergency hearing in Roanoke, Va., on Wednesday. After conferring with Judge Wayne Purdom, the sheriff consented to the release. They declined to say why Brown had been ordered to appear in Virginia.

Purdom sentenced Bobby Brown on Feb. 27 to serve 60 days in the DeKalb County Jail after the singer violated his probation terms on a drunken driving charge.

The singer was sentenced for five violations including his refusal to take drug tests and pay his probation fees. The 35-year-old Brown also had been charged for failing to provide proof that he underwent counseling and completed his house arrest.

The fifth violation relates to a December misdemeanor battery charge in which police said Brown hit his wife, Grammy-winning singer Whitney Houston, leaving her with a bruised cheek and a cut inside her lip. Brown is scheduled to appear May 5 in a Fulton County court on that charge.

Brown was scheduled to be released Thursday.

 

Correction: Bobby-Brown Story

ATLANTA (AP)--In a March 22 story about Bobby Brown's release from jail, The Associated Press quoted DeKalb County Sheriff Thomas Brown as saying Bobby Brown was let out early to appear in court in Virginia. The DeKalb County Sheriff's Department later corrected that statement to say Brown was released early to appear in court in Massachusetts.
